The cricket season has sprung meaning many of you are most likely fighting for your fair share of the remote off of your significant other. Traditional test matches can be a longggg slog, five days to be precise, but what if there was a form of the sport you could enjoy as well…
Say hello to the Big Bash! It’s cricket in its funnest form with plenty of action jam-packed into one evening’s worth of entertainment. Now I can see the look of trepidation on your face but let me reassure you the BBL (Big Bash League) is the place to be on a balmy summer’s night and here’s why:
1. STUFF ACTUALLY HAPPENS
As I’ve touched on already, cricket doesn’t always get the best wrap from us girls. But! I promise you you won’t be bored attending one of these games. With each side playing just 20 overs each and the pressure on to make a score you’re bound to see thrills and spills galore.
2. IT DOESN’T COST AN ARM AND A LEG
Good news! All your body parts will remain in tact as tickets are just $20.00 a pop or $42.50 for a family. Essentially you can buy that handbag you’ve been eyeing off AND still afford to check out the BBL #winning.
3. THERE’S OTHER STUFF TO WATCH TOO
I particularly love to join in when they play the likes of the YMCA, The Addam’s Family and Eagle Rock between each ball. Because who doesn’t love an impromptu rendition of making letters with your arms in the air? Other non-cricketing stuff includes the likes of fireworks, dancers and kiss cam.
4. EVERY SEAT IS UP FOR GRABS
All BBL games offer non-allocated seating meaning you can easily find a bunch of spare seats with your mates or you could sit so close to the fence that you could stare into Steve Smith’s eyes. True story.
5. THERE’S NO EXCUSE NOT TO GO
What’s that? Oh you’ve got an ‘appointment’ on that night? Well sorry that’s just not going to cut it. The beauty about the Big Bash is that there’s a game on every single night, except for Christmas, so there’s virtually no way to avoid it. You may as well just embrace it!
The fifth season of the KFC Big Bash League kicks off Thursday December 17.
